SPAM issue
« on: October 09, 2015, 05:19:26 PM »
I've had Avast about a month now and the spam killer works pretty good, but lately it seems some spammer are still getting through and they ALL have the exact same subject line. Is there a way to fine tune the spam killer so as to not only blacklist their email addy but the subject line as well? It's getting so annoying now that daily I have to "black list" and tag as "spam" the same emails over and over again because they use different email addys.

HELP???????????????????????????????????????

most mail clients (if you use one) have spam or message rules settings
if you acess your mail account from web you should find the same settings there or a option to mark a mail as spam

That "bot" designation (of which there's 3 or 4 sub-categories) is essentially just an in-joke, and is automatically assigned to any member who's posted a huge number of times, typically over a number of years.  Possibly someone else can steer you to the current definitions of post-count-based "ratings".  Sorry for any misunderstanding.

Thanks, Asyn, I was obviously too lazy to hunt for it myself.  :)

ok.. you're not a bot.. good to hear. But my original question was never answered. It was "Is there a way to fine tune the spam killer so as to not only blacklist their email addy but the subject line as well?"

And I use MS Outlook 2010 (ugh) and it's spam settings are so useless I bought your software.
